    Question Door handles have gaskets?

    Do the exterior door handle pulls on 1971 240Z cars supposed to have a gasket between the handle and the door?

    Yes, although they do fall off very often.

    it more or less has the idea of keeping the water intake to a minimum, thru the door handle. And it also minimizes vibration when the door handle is released to soon. (flipped)

    The usually rott and fall off like E said

    Yes they do. Unfortunately, I don't think you can buy the gaskets separately and even if you could you'd either have to cut them or drill out a brad to put them on. It looks like the gasket was put on then the handle attached to the unit.

    I ended up just buying new handles. Added bonus, they look really good. I didn't realize how much the old handles detracted from the exterior.

    Good luck!

    I got new handles, but they didn't come with gaskets. Darn!

    They may have NOT been new.

    The "gasket" we're referring to is more of a weatherstrip rubber surround around the hinge points of the handle. Not a flat compressible piece of rubber or material that would go between the handle base and the door sheet metal. The rubber "boots" just surround the hinge tabs.

    Hope that helps clarify it.
